Come hang out!

Please Note: Due to the Instructional Meeting on Thursday and STEM on Friday I will not be here on Wednesday Afternoon (sorry folks I'm part time) but I still encourage you to set time aside! I promise to bring the snacks next week!


Soooo here's a challenge instead! Visit my TES Webpage and check out the new resources! Discover something new to you and post it here! Prizes awarded to those who participate!

Google Tip: Share with Google Templates

Did you know you can share your files without using the share button! Avoid the risk of your oringial getting changed and submit a template of your work for others to use. Need a pamphlet, newsletter, or lesson planning template? Grab one from the Gallery!


Check out this tutorial on how to create and save a template. Browse the LCPS Template Gallery (must be logged-in with LCPS account) to check out what your colleagues have already shared!
